Lisa’s Cross-Cultural Salsa with Tomato, Avocado, Lime, and Feta
When fresh tomato seasons arrives, make Lisa’s Cross-Cultural Salsa with Tomato, Avocado, Lime, and Feta to serve over chicken, fish, or pork cooked on the grill! And this tasty salsa is low-glycemic, gluten-free, meatless, and South Beach Diet friendly!
Lisa’s Cross-Cultural Salsa with Tomato, Avocado, Lime, and Feta is a recipe that came from a faithful reader named Lisa who’s such a creative cook that she’d probably make a great food blogger! But since she doesn’t have a blog Lisa sends me her fantastic recipe ideas and lets me post them on Kalyn’s Kitchen. (Thanks Lisa!) Lisa is the one who shared her “dumb” salad recipe that I renamed Not-so-Dumb Salad with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Onions, Avocado, and Balsamic Vinegar.
That recipe has been wildly popular on the blog and I promise you that this Salsa with Tomato, Avocado, Lime, and Feta is just as good. I ate it over grilled fish when I tested the recipe, but I’d love this over sauteed or grilled chicken breasts or pork chops, or as a topping for tacos or burritos. And of course if it’s a hot summer night and you’re sitting out on the deck, you could certainly eat it with toasted pita bread or chips!
Start by zesting a lime and squeezing the juice into a bowl that’s big enough to hold all the salsa ingredients. Cut up the avocado and toss with the lime juice and zest.
Chop enough tomatoes to make 1 cup chopped ripe tomato. Chop 1/4 cup red onion (or you could use sliced green onions.>/p>
Crumble 1/2 cup Feta cheese (or less, I think 1/3 cup would have been fine. Mix together the lime juice, avocado, tomato, and red onion and stir to combine.
Then gently stir in the crumbled feta until it’s mixed into the salsa. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste and serve.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Lisa’s Cross-Cultural Salsa with Tomato, Avocado, Lime, and Feta is loaded with low-glycemic ingredients, and as long as you don’t overdo it on the Feta, it would be approved for any phase of the South Beach Diet. It’s also great for most other low-carb diet plans, although you may want to use portion control because tomatoes and avocados both have some carbs.
